Rain and gusty winds increase

Good Tuesday to one and all. Rain continues to spread over much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. This rain is part of what’s left of Hurricane Patricia from the Pacific Ocean.

As the day wears on, the rains will increase in intensity, and winds will do the same. Gusts from late Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday should be range from 30 to 40 mph. Locally higher winds will be possible with any thunderstorm that develops.

The most likely chance of a few storms comes Tuesday night into early Wednesday.

Rainfall totals through Wednesday will average from 1 to 3 inches in Central Kentucky, with lower totals in the east.

Here are your radars to track Tuesday’s wet weather:

The Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland starts Friday with mostly clear skies. Temps will be in the low 30s to start the day with afternoon highs in the mid- and upper 50s. Winds will be very gusty.

Saturday is a huge day in our region. We have the Breeders’ Cup, Halloween and the Kentucky-Tennessee football game. Another big storm system develops across Texas and slowly works our way over the weekend.

Make it a great day and take care.
